As the pandemic continues, many celebrities who have been diagnosed with coronavirus are coming forward. One of the latest public figures is former Love & Hip Hop star Sincere Show, who took to social media to discuss what he’s going through.
Sincere Show on ‘Love & Hip Hop’
Show, whose real name is Vincent Coffey, was a supporting cast member on the very first season of Love & Hip Hop: Hollywood. To date, the first season is the only season in which Show has appeared on a Love & Hip Hop series. He is depicted as a major party promoter in Hollywood.
Most of his scenes and storylines revolved around Teairra Mari. Show and Miss Diddy hosted a showcase featuring Mari and it did not go well at all. After Mari’s showing, Show began to criticize the performance, her singing, and her weight. Mari responds with physically trying to attack Show.
Show continued to appear throughout the first season and was last seen in the season’s reunion special. He no longer appeared after this.
However, he did make headlines back in 2017 when he got into an altercation with another Love & Hip Hop supporting cast member, Rose Burguandy, who is an ex-boyfriend of former star Hazel-E.
He revealed his coronavirus diagnosis on social media
In a video on Instagram’s IGTV, Show explained to people what he had been going through over the past few days, revealing that he has coronavirus.
He wrote in the caption, “It took a lot for me to make this video as I am a very private person, but it is important for me to share my story. Please everyone take this seriously #Covid19#Coronavirus Protect yourself, protect your family.”
In the video itself, Show explained, “About a week ago, you know, wasn’t feeling my best. [I] had to call the ambulance to take me to the hospital. They read all the necessary tests and everything and I was diagnosed with COVID-19. Been in the hospital ever since.”
He continued, talking about how he has pneumonia in both of his longs and how not many people know how to deal with the disease.
“You got healthcare professionals, go to school for you know, 10, 20, 30 years, and they don’t even know what this thing is. Nobody fully understands what it is yet,” he said.
Our thoughts go out to him for a speedy recovery.
